Ronald Rudin, Philip Lichti, & Archinodes. Returning the Voices to Kouchibouguac National Park.
This online website repatriates the voices of residents from seven New Brunswick communities who were removed from their lands in the 1970s to create Kouchibouguac National Park. The map created to facilitate the removals is reworked into an accessible online navigational tool that allows the user to locate memories of place within the park’s boundaries. In its multi-media presentation of audio memories, videos of the park, and still photographs, Returning the Voices sets a new standard in design for producing historical narratives of place.
